Green tea candy from a great grower

One of our wonderful growers in Kumamoto included these green tea sweets with his latest shipment of green tea.


I am saddened to report, however, that by the time I posted this blog, these ame [in Japanese] were already gone.


Perhaps next time I will give them away through some sort of contest. Although that will take a lot of willpower, you understand.



With green tea being so popular these days, a trip to your nearest Asian market should reveal something like this, if not the exact same brand. There are plenty of delicious sweets out there — far too many, if you know what I mean.
